Who needs a flu vaccine?
d) All of the above
Getting an annual influenza vaccine is the No. 1 way to protect yourself from the flu. Purdue University is once again providing seasonal flu shots on the West Lafayette campus for its official retirees and their spouses.* You don’t need an appointment. Just bring your PUID and get your flu shot. It’s that simple!
*The Fluzone Quadrivalent vaccine which is designed to protect against four different flu viruses; two influenza A viruses and two influenza B viruses and is approved for anyone ages 6 months and older, will be administered at the events below. Additionally, the Flublok Quadrivalent vaccine – a which is egg free and is approved for use in people 18 years and older (and has proven to especially benefit adults 50 plus) – will be available. See your provider if you need an alternative vaccine.
*For ages 65 and older, the Fluzone High-Dose will be available. Fluzone High-Dose vaccine contains four times the amount of antigen (the part of the vaccine that prompts the body to make antibody) contained in regular flu shots. The additional antigen is intended to create a stronger immune response (more antibody) in the person getting the vaccine. See your provider if you need an alternative vaccine.
